If I Could Love...

if i could love some one,
true to her, like no one.
Wish i could get some one,
true to me, like no one.

like a child, i could cry.
With out wings i could fly
shoulder on which i could rest
wiping away the pain of the past

hahd in hand, i could cross
deserts of sand, all across
stay togather till the end
sail across the stormy winds

wish i could love some one
true to my heart, like no one
wish i could find some one
who could say your my only one

Elections in Andhra.

I have rarely touched the politics in my posts... but there is a very interesting thing that i have observed since my trip to Hyderabad. Coincidentally i landed in Hyderabad the day counting was to start and results to be announced.

The day i landed in Hyderabad, i was talking to the Autowala on the way. He says that congress should not come to power, as it has not done much for them. Interestingly he also tells me how the political parties were handing out money for the votes. That guy seemed to be very honest. He was scolding his brothers who took money for voting. He might not be a political analyst.. but at least he can give one side of the story.

A couple of days passed, and one day my mom was talking to the maid about the current government and she started scolding the congress government about the power cuts, price hikes etc etc. She too is not a political analyst.

In between i have been to a function at my sisters place. There are three people in their family and they balanced voted for 3 different parties. Post lunch there was a discussion amongst the old generation and the new. Almost everyone were talking against the election of Congress. A point to note that all the people involved in the discussion were highly educated, and were in high ranking posts.

And the day of the oath taking, while watching television, I and my mom had a thought at that time. Is the Congress Win in the elections legitimate. Somehow it all looks as if it has been staged. May be because of the impression that I had on YSR I might be talking this way. But taking samples from all the discussions above. All the varied people that were giving their opinions... all the sample population was against the current decision. But, if all these people were against.. then who voted for him???

There is also an interesting note that my mom made from our location. Talasani Srinivas Yadav, lost to a newcomer movie star Jayasudha. It seems that the Srinivas yadav had very good reputation in the constituency. He used to respond to the peoblems of downtrodden and laborers irrespective of time. Wonder how she managed to win... that too with very little campaining ( There was one news where she was not allowed to campaign by the locals ).

Rigging is not a very tough thing for the ruling parties. But the way the current results came out.. With the electronic voting machines is a little interesting. No matter what anyone has to say. This government is going to stay for 5 more years. Lets hope for Good Development, and all the people of the state be happy all the way.

The auto wala i mentioned in the begining, he liked the fact that i was talking to him.. he stopped at a tea place in between and offered me tea, chatted for a while and he payed for the tea. I offered to pay.. but he said "Anna gitla jeste getlane... ne ista gada".

I like talking to people, strangers.... but as most of you know.. im a very shy guy :P

The Awakening...

I Have been sleeping. I have been dreaming. I used to think that iam optimistic... positive thinking... but today i realized iam still sleeping... still dreaming.

I came to understand one thing today... Positive thinking only increases the probability... but it does not guarantee Success. I need to wake up. I need to keep moving.

Will keep posting more thoughts on to this space. To begin with. Here is the video of a small boy, I dont have any words to describe further.
